At least in BC, it appears even the harmonized sales tax takes a back seat to play-off hockey.
The provincial government had scheduled it’s first telephone townhall meeting tonight in Surrey, but it will now be held tomorrow night.
That’s being done so it won’t clash with the deciding game of the Vancouver Canucks’ Stanley Cup series with the Chicago Black Hawks.
Thus it will now be combined with the Peace River Region meeting slated to begin at 6.30 tomorrow evening.
As reported earlier, the regionally based town hall discussions are being initiated by the province as an opportunity for the general public to talk directly with government ministers and offer suggestions on how the controversial blended sales tax can be improved.
In each case, area residents will receive a phone call in the early evening of their designated meeting day, and if interested in participating, they can then stay on the line, and follow recorded instructions.
